No matter where you are in the world there is one simple fact, women love sports stars.

Of course the Russian National Football (Soccer) Team has no shortage of sultry supporters including international supermodel Natalie Vodianova.  Hot Russian women have always shown their support for their team. In 2004 just before the Euro Cup, some of the player’s wives and girlfriends including, Oksana Kuptsova, Larisa Smertin, Inga Ovchinnikov and Tatyana Evseyeva (right), stuck provocative poses in the daily newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda to cheer on their national team.

On October 10, Russian women will be cheering their boys on in Moscow for a crucial match between Germany and Russia to see who will be the top seed in the European Group 4 for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Both Germany and Russia go into the game with just one point separating the two teams. Both teams are lead by strong players who are playing on some of the top professional club teams in the world including Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Moscow Dynamo, CSKA Moscow, Tottenham Hotspur, Bayern Munich and Stuttgart.

For 2010 World Cup campaign the Russian team has one of the best sides in Europe.  Lead by team captain and 2006 Russian Footballer of the Year, Andrei Arshavin, fellow forward Roman Pavlyuchenko, and midfielder Yuri Zhirkov, the Russian team possess the ability to score and dominate opponents.  With four players playing in the England Premier League and the rest of the squad playing in the top Russian Premier League, the team has a solid base of international superstars.

Superstars for the Russian National team can also be found off the pitch as well cheering on the team. The cheers are lead by wife of the team captain the lovely Yulia Arshavin and the stunning Russian supermodel Inna Zhirkov wife of star midfielder Yuri. Fans of Russian Women will see player’s wives such Maria Pogrebnyak and Larisa Pavlyuchenko, and the steaming Russian actress Olga Kurylenko (left) all cheering on their side.
